For various reasons our second attempt to visit Sywell Country Park in July was no more successful than our first and consequently our 2016 annual species list remains at 89. There is no group visit planned for August, but anyone interested in birdwatching might like to consider visiting the British Birdwatching Fair at Rutland Water between 19th and 21st August. In addition to an extensive display of birdwatching equipment and holidays there is a programme of wildlife lectures and a chance to take a wildlife cruise with Simon King on the Rutland Belle.

For further information about the group, please call me. John Cameron.
